Under certain conditions it is necessary to reboot a host; for example, after installing a software upgrade. This procedure uses a Host Task List message to shut down and restart a host. 

Security Analytics also offers other options for shutting down a host:

  • To shut down and restart a host using Host view, go to the Hosts view from a service in the Services view (see Search for Hosts) and then follow the Shut Down and Restart a Host from the Hosts View procedure below.
  • To shut down the physical host without restarting, see Shut Down Host.

Shut Down and Restart a Host from the Hosts View

  1. In the Security Analytics menu, select Administration > Hosts.
  2. In the Hosts panel, select a host and Actns.png > Reboot Host.
